re: Using Create-React-App with Express VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

hey Lou, thanks for the article.
I'm trying this to see if I can get some environment variables to my static app, but I can't seem to get it to work. I'm assuming I have to pass them in to the client some how.
Do you have any ideas?

thx

 

I'm a little confused, environment variables are typically for configuring your back end rather than exposing anywhere else. Could you elaborate on what you're trying to achieve?

 

I don't remember exactly what I was trying to achieve, but an example I can think of is hitting endpoints in different dev environments. For example:
GET => dev.mydomain.com/myendpoint
GET => qa.mydomain.com/myendpoint
GET => mydomain.com/myendpoint

I would want to consume the same environment variables that my Microservices use, instead of creating a hardcoded copy in my JS code.

Hope it makes sense.
